I was looking around the Internet and I stumbled across this cool 4 string resonator bass. It’s constructed of nickel plated steel with a lipstick pickup and a biscuit resonator. After seeing the videos and hearing the tone of this bass, I really want to try one. Ozark’s website is here.
Below are two videos of the Resonator Bass in action played by Alessandro Corsi of the duo La Vague. He is a fantastic player. His YouTube page is here. In the first video the bass is running through an amp. Huge beefy tone with a gritty pick-like attack even when played with the fingers. (I mentioned it’s made of steel, right?) The second video is just the bass and a mic. It doesn’t have quite the muscular tone, but it still sounds good. Great stuff.
